When I heard at the beginning of the year the ep Attended only by birds that BGUDNA released I knew I had to invite him to release at FeedbackLoop Label, and so I did. Thankfully BjÃ¶rgvin accepted my invitation and created this kind of sequel to Attended only by birds. This last act is therefore a prolonging of the filigree piano tunes but with added sounds that take us to an imagery of desolated land, cold but strangely warm inside.
I am very happy to present you This last act by BGUDNA, because it thrives in a minimalistic approach, a magnificent use of silence and an understated mood that sound astonishingly simple and yet beautiful.
